them at all. just about every republican you can think of was here. john mccain. john kasich the governor, senator portman, senator graham. republicans from all over the country. they are all going to leave here and fan out over the country in support of mitt romney. i will be in wisconsin tomorrow. florida the next day. maybe pennsylvania. they are going to probably decide that as we move along. but the idea was all of the supporters here tonight supporting mitt romney and paul ryan and starting tomorrow morning they will all be in the different parts of the country probably mostly in the swing states. >> greta: is there any way to when he sure, ohio tonight? i know that everyone on the republican side says governor romney is going to win and everybody on president obama's side says he is going to win. how do you measure it tonigh >> i mean you know obviously, i guess an obama rally you would feel differently. at this rally it seems like he has enormous enthusiasm. this has the feeling of a winning campaign. the enthusiasm here tonight was tremendous. if this s a is swing st
for the democrats. in fact, i secretly suspect that john mccain voted for obama in the last election. but i don't think it's such a terrible thing. a lot of irish catholics voted for jfk because he was the first irish catholic president. i don't think it's a slander upon colin powell to say this, though i don't particularly think it's true. >> the insult isn't that voted for barack obama. it's why. >> it's because he's black. i don't think that's such a terrible thing to say. like i say, lots of irish catholics voted for jfk just because he was irish catholic. >> john sununu has assumed that was the motivation behind what colin powell has done. colin powell has never used that as the reason for why he's voted for obama. >> he's probably wrong. i just don't think it's such a terrible thing to speculate about. >> if you play the race card in putting into colin powell's mouth words he hasn't actually used for his reasoning, that's just playing a race game, a rather unpleasant race game. >> maybe. but i bet there are a lot of black people who are very proud of having the first black president. i do
: this is the 2008 presidential race. barack obama way ahead of john mccain. and it is my understanding that in the polls recently for this election that romney is inching closer to obama, is th correct? >> it is correct. it is in within the margin of error. >> what do you make of the surge? minnesota has been a blue state what do you make for romney? >> it is a conservative minnesota, gretchen. in 2010 minnesota won both studies of the legislatures, republicans did. we are seag a move to a conservative trend in minnesota. >> gretchen: the governor seat went to a democrat in a tight, tight election and senator al franken won with 312 vote,many of them disputed and michele bachmann is in a tight race or do it see it that way? >> i have known mitch mitch for 10 years and one of the most dedicate hard working conservatives we have in congress and i believe she will prevail in that race. >> gretchen: she's up against tom graves. we have mitchell bachmann, republican 51 percent . jim graves 45 percent. and so that's outside of the margin of error . they had a recent debate i believe. did the
washington, d.c. reporter said about all of this. john mccain. >> for days and days they told the american people something that had no basis in fact whatsoever. that is the president of the united states. also, by the way, he said he immediately ordered action to be taken. no action was taken over seven hours now. we find out the secretary of defense decided not to take any action. said the other day this is as bad as watergate but i said nobody died in watergate. this is massive coverup or not acceptable service to american people. >> dana: it doesn't matter election, they will continue to be on this to find out information. a hearing is scheduled for november 15. one of your old pals, i don't know. i guess i can't call her an old pal. she said this is basically a made up story. >> greg: the definition of a made-up story to eleanor cliff, won the fnc beater two reading theth bitter column by maureen dowd. hood ornament of the main stream media. refusing to acknowledge a real scandal. how is she an intel expert? if she was special agent cliff, somehow related to somebody killed, after cal
at the polls what you will see is white noncollege voters. a group that was 58-40 for john mccain nationally four years ago are not giving romney in ohio that much of an edge. and so i think there is some gain that the democrats have gotten from that -- that huge barrage of antiromney ads they ran before the convention. i would say this, though, sean. i think there is some reason to beware arery of the ohio polls. we are seeing results there in the most recent weeks there varying in between a tie and a five point obama swing. but you we are also seeing in the polls almost all of them the 11 in which the real clear politics .com average is based romney way ahead as much as is 20 points among independents and when you look at the party identification figure there, the average in those 11 polls is 39-32, a 7-point advantage. that is essentially equivalent to what the exit poll proclaimed although as josh jordan points out in national review the exit poll party i.d. doesn't seem to match with the actual results in the exit the poll or the actual results and he estimates that the democratic party
in half. i've done some math, can you see where mitt romney makes up some six to eight million votes. john mccain lost by ten million votes, he could pick up a whole bunch of votes in the battleground states. let's go to our battleground map. we have the president winning in virginia, wisconsin is a state that just feels on the ground is something that leans toward the president. now you just give him new hampshire, and he sits at 270, that's with giving romney ohio, that's with giving romney florida. that's with giving him iowa. that's with giving him colorado. that's this issue of the battleground versus the popular vote. >> more to come from chuck todd. thank you very much. we'll be back in a couple of minutes with him. i want to get to our battleground governors in a minute. but i want to start around the table with our roundtail. i mentioned rachel maddow is here from msnbc. carly fiorina, david brooks of the "new york times," ej dionne of the "washington post." i feel like the final stretch is going to be dominated by the fight over the economy. it's what ultimately can tip tha scale
in a big way when it comes to early voting. unlike in 2008 when obama led senator john mccain by 15 points in early voting, in 2012 it's romney that's now running ahead by an impress impressiven points. 52% of the ballots have been cast in romney's favor. it's an eight point swing, by the way, in only four weeks. with all of those numbers in mind it's not surprising that the bi-partisan battleground model predicts romney as the winner in tuesday's election. will these numbers prove to be true? here to continue our debate is fox news political analyst. she's having a panic attack, juan williams, and from the five, dana puert dana perino is. it's just aut a momentum. i got a feeling in 2008, you could just tell it wasn't going to go senator mccain's way. >> i think there's a lot of truth to that. there's a mood difference in 2008. republicans for good reason thought they weren't going to win that election. everything was going against them. in 2012 there's a much different feeling across the country. if you look at the crowds that romney and ryan were able to gather this past weekend, actua
either for john mccain or barack obama in 2008. one entire side of the voting population in this upcoming election is the portion of our country that lives on the edge. as we continue to cope with and rescue people from and now recover bodies from, the impact of this one storm on the most populated part of america's coastline today, the governor of new york state has been again and again trying to draw people's attention to this not being just one event, but a challenge for the whole country that events like this might now be happening with increased frequency. not just in new york, but in all of these heavily populated places, that before now had a fairly predictable relationship with the body of water, with the ocean, that they abut. what is that predictability? that balanced and expectation, developed over the past couple of centuries, and these cities on the water is now over. mostly this gets talked about in terms of the people denying that climate change is a real thing, and big talk about whether we should try to stop climate change and global warming. but that may be getting resol
can't imagine a john mccain not sending the american military in at the earliest possible moment and not worrying about what libya or libyans might have thought. it was clear for months that libya was incapable of protecting our diplomats. the british pulled out. the red cross pulled out. our diplomats were begging for more security and that consulate had been attacked twice, once with a hole 12 feet wide. what else did the president of the united states need? did somebody have to bang him on the head? what did he need to go in there and make sure that our people were properly protected? this is what happens when you elect someone president of the united states who isn't ready to lead. who wants the lead by following. >> do you believe as some republicans do that the white house or certainly people close to the white house were aware of what was happening on that fateful night and decided not to do anything? >> they either were aware of it and decided not to do anything or they were asleep at the switch. either one leads to incompetence. it didn't have to happen. it's a tragedy t
encouraged here. four years ago president obama was beating john mccain 55-40 in this survey, and now romney is leading obama 52-45. andrea, how conclusive? what do you draw from this? >> this is a very big deal. for weeks, bill we've heard the media selling the storyline that supposedly obama is crushing romney in early voting and we see that that is just not true. it shows that he's up seven points. and by the way, bill, that is a 22 point collapse from where president obama was in 2008. bob mentioned the swing states, let's take a look at those. you see that romney is leading in early voting in florida, and in colorado, and leading with absentee ballots in florida and pennsylvania. i would point out with ohio, by the way the president is down 22 million votes and program l 220,220,000 votes. and romney is up 260. this is not good news for obama. >> let's put something in perspective. florida and colorado have already had republican edges in early voting number one. pennsylvania as well, i might point out because democrats vote more on election today. in ohio it's not even close, in terms
, governor jindal, senator rubio and senator john mccain on the stump for romney at the same time. john avalon is in the battleground state of ohio. so john, it's a cavalcade of republican stars. will it help romney? >> they hope so, carol. i mean, this is sort of that last-minute stampede. the romney camp taking the major surrogates in the swing states and that's what they should be doing. this is a game of inches, a war of attrition and the swing states every vote could matter. they put out everything they got. there are six days left in the election. you don't leave anything in the locker room. >> ohio voters, do they have sandy on their minds at all? >> well, there's definitely been bad weather as you may be able to tell throughout ohio all the of sandy and the storm is very dissipated. we have gone to the election polling places open for early election and still packed. no sign of a falloff on that because of the weather. the debates about the economy. the campaign having a tussle right now over chrysler and gm. when biden and clinton koim to youngstown they slammed mitt romney for
, and essentially, it trounced john mccain's network. we were talking about contacts, volunteers, get out the vote machine. now, you bring up this point, and i thought it was interesting. you say he didn't really need all of that because there was enough voter enthusiasm and bush fatigue to put him over the top anyway, but you make the point here that you say the ground game, a superior ground game from this president, is absolutely critical. why the difference this go-round? >> well, the political rule of thumb is that your ground game, your field organization, can get you probably about two points above what you're polling or above what you would otherwise get. this is going to be a very close election. a lot of polls are showing it tied nationally. down to the wire in a lot of battleground states. you need those two points. in 2008 when obama really blew out mccain in a lot of battleground states, it was really sort of icing on the cake to have this superior organization and there's even a political scientist who has done a study and found that obama would have won that election anyway even wit
. but it's not as big as the one he had over john mccain four years ago. of all the swing states, ohio could be the most important. no one had won the presidency without the buckeye state since 1960, and a brand new cnn/orc poll shows the candidates there are in a statistical dead heat. 50% of likely voters favor president obama while 47% support mitt romney. an nbc/wall street journal/maris poll shows a wider gap with obama leading by six points. it's a tight race in florida as well. a poll shows obama leading by just two points, but a mason dixon poll gives romney the edge. 51% of likely voters say they'll vote for the republican candidate, while 45% say they'll vote for obama. so another state that could be a make or break state for both campaigns, we're talking about colorado now, which is home to nine electoral votes. in 2008, obama won that state. but in the past, it has favored republicans. kyung lah joins us from englewood, colorado, where mitt romney will be holding a rally later on today. nearly 1.5 million people have already voted in colorado there by mail-in, early voting,
thought he could get ohio, he would be there. john mccain did the same thing in 2008. he went to pennsylvania on sunday before election day, he lost by ten points. >> i want to talk about something that is interesting to me. calling it an endorsement was new york city's mayor michael bloomberg endorsed president obama but didn't shower him with praise. in 2008 obama ran as a pragmatic problem solver. as president, he devoted little time and effort to the coalition of sen trysts which doomed hope on illegal guns, job creation and deficit reduction. this is an endorsement. your reaction to this? you read it fully. >> the president had a number of republicans come out in favor of him. colin powell, the effect of an endorsement. the president tried getting republicans in washington to work with him. when they said the number is to have a one-term president. mitch mcconnell said it's difficult to work in washington when their agenda is to get rid of you. >> i don't think it does. mayor mike bloomberg wants to take away guns, cigars and big gulps. ohio and other states big on the se
